I am about to close on a house and need at least 10 pines trees cut down immediately! A little tight on money because of the move, does anyone know if people just "want" these and will come and get them or do I have to hire a company...Thanks!

If these are anywhere near a structure on your property I would not want just anyone who "wanted" them to do anything with a chainsaw that could adversely affect your structures if something went wrong. I would imagine that liability could be an issue if someone got hurt taking trees down on your property.

It would be best to hire a bonded company to mitigate risk IMHO.

Yep definitely hire a company. Last think you want is some Joe Schmoe coming onto your property with a chainsaw and dropping a tree onto your house because he has no idea what he's doing. Pretty sure that would delay closing of the sale

OMG - seriously - you don't want some dude who's never used a chainsaw on your property cutting down trees. Why do they need to be cut down IMMEDIATELY!?

I don't think you can DIY this . Tree cutting isn't cheap, but it isn't something I would skimp on. Get the pros to do it.

My guess is it's something the buyers requested in the negotiations that was agreed to. Either that or an inspector declared these trees a hazard to the house for some reason.

Hire a professional...an amature can not only damage your property but surrounding properties...HUGE liability if something happens and they are not bonded/insured...definitely agree this is not something you should skimp on....get 3-4 estimates to compare pricing...Good Luck.

Yes, please don't skimp and hire an unlicensed, unisured person.

We had some trees taken out by Arbor Lawn and felt they gave us a good price. For a little bit extra, they grind the stumps too, which I highly recommend.

What on earth would require trees to be cut down immediately? Are they a hazard?
